Hidden Stars of Hollywood
These little fun radio jewels of adventure allow the stunt men and women of old time Hollywood to step out of the shadows and tell their own stories. What a great tribute to the people who brought so much excitement to the movies. Let's face it, if it wasn't for stunt men and stunt women nearly every scene in the movies would be people sitting around moving their mouths at each other. There's a reason movie directors used to say "Action!". Hollywood stunts were risk and danger turned into an art form. And the artists were the stunt people. Let them bring their "gags" to life for you through these marvelous programs.
I had never heard of this one before and wasn't sure what to expect. Basically each 12 - 14 minute episode featured a Hollywood stuntman recalling an exciting incident that occured during a movie shoot.
Something tells me the original stories have been spiced up by adding some creative touches...but that is part of the fun.
